Message from Pedro Pan Eloísa Echazábal. Below the link to the Miami Dade College announcement dated July 8th regarding the upcoming Freedom Tower exhibit about the Cuban exile experience. This exhibit will be launched in mid-September. The first exile focus will be on the Pedro Pan exodus. Most of us who reunited with our parents in Miami remember visiting the Freedom Tower for the services the U.S. government made available to the newly arriving Cuban exiles. The Pedro Pan exhibit will last about two years. Miami Dade College and The Miami Herald Media Company invited me to collaborate with them when the plans were first developed about two years ago, and I was ecstatic with the opportunity. Also collaborating with their memorabilia and photos are Operation Pedro Pan Group Inc.organization, Barry University Archives and Special Collections, University of Miami Cuban Heritage Collection and Florida International University Libraries. As soon as the next official announcement comes out, I will forward. In the meantime, I would like to let you know that a "collecting day" is being planned for Saturday, July 26th, from 12 to 4 p.m. at the Freedom Tower. This is the day when Pedro Pans will have the opportunity to bring memorabilia regarding our Pedro Pan days to be loaned to the exhibit. Required receipts and documentation will be available there. Courtesy parking on the open lot across the street south of the Tower. Entrance on N.E. 5th street. Just let the attendant know you are coming to the Tower to bring your items. This is a great opportunity to showcase our experience. Again, as additional announcements are released, I'll forward. http://www.mdc.edu/main/news/articles/2014/07/mdcand_the_miami_herald_media_company_to.aspx

Melvin: Ya veo que te gustan esas palabritas con la eñe... Bueno, por lo menos no me añadiste a la lista de los añejos ni de los ñames, pero sí que me vas a poner ñoña con tantas atenciones. Ta'luego!

Hola, Melvin: Gracias por la identificación de la gente en la foto. Enseguida que mencionas un nombre me acuerdo... ¡qué cosa! ... Deberíamos nombrarlos a tí y a Pepe 'Historiadores oficiales de Florida City' o por lo menos darles una medalla por tener la mejor memoria. *!* Mira, tengo que volver a Miami en julio y voy a ver si puedo coordinar el viaje con la fecha del desayuno. Ya veré. Cuídate. Yoli

Melvin yo he tratado de entrar en la pagina mia pero desgraciadamente me dice que mi "password" no esta correcta. Yolanda va a ver si se puede conectar con Luisa del Miami Herald para ver si ella me puso un password que no es de mi conocimiento. Gracias por contestarme, ya me siento mejor.

Melvin, I can not even remember 1% of the kids, like me who lived in Florida City. However I remember that Matacumbe always came to Florida City on Saturdays to watch movies. Remember the room on the second floor, above the small church we had? I remember the mass (August 1963) that was outdoors. I have picture from that site. Can't remember the name of the young man in the picture with me. Unfortunatelly, I am new at "computer" knowledge as I retired in 1999 and had not worked in the computer until now that I bought me a laptop. But I am s l o w l y..... learning. I have tried to get into the internet to write my story and get in contact with other Pedro Pan but I am unable to register????????

Pues si, Melvin, yo estaba en la cabaña de Sergio en el segundo "piso" frente por frente a Justo el cual una noche me ahogaba - nunca supe por qué - y me prestó su inhalador de asma y me salvó. Yo nunca he tenido asma. En Noviembre o Diciembre nos llevaron para Kendall, pero siempre estuve en la de Sergio. Si vas a la reunión de Pedro Pan CCC en Noviembre podemos hacer una reunioncita especial de "Sergieros" ese weekend. !Muy buena idea!
